Yooooo Gabba Gabba!!
Have you ever sat and watched the shows your toddler is watching?? I mean, actually watched them. Sure I know what Baby Einstein is, I previewed it once before letting her in the zone... I hear the Wiggles playing in the back-round as I pack up snacks to take to the park, and I definitely have Hand in Hand songs stuck in my head through the bath-time and bed-time routine - but there's only one that I can't seem to break away from. Seriously. I watch each Yo Gabba Gabba episode with her, gleefully glued to the screen, enchanted by the animations, entranced by the music, and enticed by the screenplay! The retro/indie thing totally got me hooked, and the lineup of featured guests is just ridiculous (MGMT, Tony Hawk, Weezer, Jack Black, the Salteens etc. etc). The producers are genius (and clearly high on drugs), and I'd hereby like to make a shout-out to the most hip and happenin' childrens show out there! You simply can't beat a great kids show + your favorite rock bands - TV time just doesn't get any better than that! And yes, I'm obsessed... : ) Check this out, featuring the Shins:
